Created through a process of virtual exchange, ‘Watching the World Go By’ tells the story of a beautifully chaotic reconciliation of cultures. For this album we commissioned half of the music and wrote the other half our selves. The four main compositions on the album ‘Yeşil Şiir’, ’John Henry’, the ‘Cyprian Rhapsodies’ by Kemal Belevi, and the ‘Four Hypnoses (after Skip James)’ by Garrett Ian Shatzer are woven together by four short interludes. All of the music draws from Cypriot Turkish and American folk music and culture; Necati being from the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus and Mark being from Chicago.
